Vodka made from cow's milk makes international debut
Milk Money Vodka
Set to hit liquor store shelves across the US this winter, Milk Money Vodka is twice distilled from milk and twice filtered for an end product described as a “full-bodied light cream taste.”
At 40 percent alcohol by volume or ABV, the liquor is said to end with a “sweet clean finish” and is gluten-free.
Interestingly, the product's target market is females within the agricultural community ages 21 to 45, says Leche Spirits.
The product will debut in New Mexico and Colorado in the next few weeks, followed by other Midwestern states including Wisconsin, Nebraska and Minnesota.
Meanwhile, it’s not the first time farmers have tried to turn cow’s milk into vodka. When Black Cow Vodka was launched out of Dorset, England last year, the spirit was touted as a world first. Made from the whey of cow’s milk, the premium vodka is sold at high-end UK retailer Selfridges.
Meanwhile, instead of the traditional potatoes or grains, Ciroc vodka -- peddled by rapper Diddy -- is made from French grapes.
A 750-ml bottle of Milk Money Vodka retails for $19.99 USD.

More The waters around the southern Line Islands in the Pacific Ocean are home to some of the healthiest coral reefs in the world. The government of Kiribati recently declared a 12-nautical-mile fishing exclusion zone around each of the five islands, thanks in part to the efforts of National Geographic's Pristine Seas initiative and Explorer-in-Residence Enric Sala, who led a research expedition there in 2009. "Diving at the southern Line Islands reveals what the seas once were, in all their richness and wonder," says Sala. "Coming here has reset our entire understanding of what's natural, and has given us a new baseline against which to measure healthy and unhealthy reefs everywhere."
